The Napa Valley Community College District announced today that the public is invited to participate in the 2021-2022 Redistricting Process by providing input on redrawing district boundaries.
Redistricting is the regular process of adjusting the lines of voting districts in accordance with population shifts. Public agencies with district-based elections are required to update (“redistrict”) the district boundaries every ten years, following the receipt of updated population data from the federal decennial census.
Since Napa Valley College has district-based elections for its Board of Trustees, the college is required to redistrict the district boundaries prior to the next election of trustees in 2022. Trustees in districts 2, 3, 4 and 5 will be on the ballot on November 8, 2022.
The County of Napa will host the first public multi-agency redistricting workshop virtually on Thursday, September 16, 2021 at 7 p.m. To join the meeting use this link: https://countyofnapa.zoom.us/j/89110720775. At the workshop, community members will learn how to participate in this process via an interactive mapping website.
